Other Familial Abuse No topics
Thirty to forty percent of child sexual abuse happens at the hands of a family member and unfortunately, allegations can be the catalyst for the break-up of the extended family. As protective parents stand by their children and vow to protect them, we would hope that other family members would do the same but unfortunately, that doesn't always happen. Some family members will choose to deny the allegations and support the alleged offender blaming the child or protective parents for breaking up the family. Possible legal action against the alleged offender can heighten the blame even further. These cases can even result in the victimized child and their immediate family being ostracized from the extended family, sometimes while the offender continues with life as usual. This is a place for parents who are faced with the complex dynamics of the extended family to share their struggles and get the support that their family may be unable or unwilling to provide.
